Well, Phil Spector has finally gone and actually killed someone, as opposed to just murdering people's music. Just kidding Phil! Phil Spector, Record Producer, Arrested on suspicion of homicide... More about Phil Spector's Wall of Sound. I remember reading about Leonard Cohen's troubles with Phil Spector during the recording of Death of a Ladies Man: "Inscrutable and dictatorial in the studio, Spector often confiscated the musicians' charts after hours of preparation. The title song was recorded in one take at 2:30 in the morning, when Cohen and the musicians were close to exhaustion. During the sessions, Spector was inaccessible, Cohen says. He took the tapes home every night under armed guard. He chose the tracks for the final mix without consulting anyone and then mixed the album at a secret location."
